*** Public Service Announcement ***

As many of you know, Election Day is rapidly approaching. But these are no normal elections upcoming. In fact, these may be the most important mid-term elections in memory. The issues couldn't be bigger - Iraq, the war on terror, the economy, political and corporate corruption, man-child love... the list goes on and on - and there couldn't be more at stake, with control of each House of Congress in the balance.

Locally, there are two Senate races (Maryland and Virginia) that could determine which party has a majority in the Senate come January, while the race for Governor in Maryland will be a referendum on the direction in which my home state is headed.

That is why it is critically important for you to get out and vote, whether you're a Democrat, a Republican or an independent. And that is why I wanted to provide this public service, reminding you when to vote:

Democrats and independents vote on Tuesday, November 7.
Republicans vote on Wednesday, November 8.

So get out there and do your civic duty and help to make this country a better place.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.
